Fort Worth has lost an outstanding member of our community. Nancy's family has lost a lovely Mother who encompassed her family within her loving arms. We who knew her consider her family. We will all greatly miss her. My heart goes out to the family for your loss.

Thank you so very much for giving downtown back to the people of Fort Worth. 30 years ago one didn't go downtown after dark. It was dangerous. The Bass family has been integral in restoring downtown. Thank you Mrs. Bass for raising such a wonderful family that is dedicated to our wonderful city. Godspeed, Mrs. Bass

Leading by example is the thought that comes to mind when thinking of Mrs. Bass and her extended family. As a mother, I am often reminded of the example I set for my children...may her legacy continue today and always via her children and grandchildren. She has left an indelible mark on our great city.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

My Aunt - Francis Smith - went to elementary school at Lilly B. Clayton with Nancy Lee Muse in the 1930's. When Dr. Harold Beasley retired from the practice of ophthalmolgy in 1979, I was asked to assume the ophthalmic care of Nancy Lee and Perry Bass. Over the next 25 years I got to know them pretty well. They were both very kind and humble people who grew up in the great depression. She will always be the first lady of Fort Worth.

A gracious soul who welcomed this stranger to Fort Worth with her endearing Southern manner; a bright spirit whose departure will leave a bit of an emptiness behind that will no doubt be filled by the warmth of her memory.

I've never had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Bass ... but she did something too few parents do. She and her husband possessed an empathy and passion so great for their community that they led by example for their sons and others to our community's great benefit. I can think of no greater gift than to give so generously to others simply for the sake of making the world a healthier, safer, wiser and kinder place to live. Thank you Bass family for the years of love you've given us and all that is to come!
March 03, 2013
Our heartfelt sympathies go out to you at this most difficult time. The Bass family has given Fort Worth a true legacy of culture & art. As citizens of the community we appreciate all that your Mother has done and you continue to do. Thank You! Our thought and prayer's are with you.

We are thankful for the Bass family and the light they have brought to our city. We honor the memory of Mrs. Bass. She was a blessing to all of us who lived here.

What a privilege it was for me to know Mrs. Bass. She was the epitome of a great lady, who loved her family and community and cared for those she never met. One of those was my own daughter, who benefited from a Sid Richardson Foundation scholarship for which I am forever grateful. Her example inspired me throughout the years. I send my personal sympathy to all her family and may memories of her greatness and love give you comfort in the coming years.

It was my rare honor and privilege to know Nancy Lee and Perry when I was project manager for construction of their Westover Hills residence in 1950.They were kind and friendly to me over these many years and affectionately and uniquely addressed me as "Frankie".
Fort Worth will be forever grateful for their exceptional generosity,love and interests in so many of its aspects.
Nancy Lee was an exceedingly gracious lady who will be greatly missed by her fine sons,their famiies, and a legion of admirers.

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Bass. This is a tragic day for the city of Fort Worth. I did not have the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Bass personally, but I have a great respect and admiration for her. When I was 24 years old I was hospitalized at Harris Methodist Fort Worth were ,and was diagnosed with Chronic obstructive Pulmonary Disease and wasn't expected to survive long.The Bass Family Stepped in and paid for my hospitalization,medications,and my o2 rental for which I am extremely thankful towards the Bass family as I know for certain without her help I wouldn't have survived and I am extremely thankful for the extra thirteen years I was given due to the compassion Of Nancy Bass. Fort Worth has suffered a great loss with her passing.. I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family

It is sad to lose such a lovely lady, after we lost her sweet husband just a few short years back. Every time I go to the Bass Hall, I don't know if anybody noticed, or not, but, in the ceiling of the Bass Hall, in the clouds, are two birds flying together. I like to think of them as Mr. and Mrs. Bass flying together. Fort Worth is not going to be the same without one of its major matriarchs. My heart goes out to Ed and his brothers, relatives, friends, and acquaintances. Mrs. Bass will be terribly missed, and never forgotten.
March 01, 2013
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
